5.0 out of 5 stars "Watching You Think" by NEeMA 17 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with this album the first time I heard it, and I appreciate it more with every play. NEeMA (yes that's the correct way to write it!) is an exotic lady of Egyptian and Lebanese descent from Montreal, who writes most of her own material. She plays acoustic guitar, and is accompanied on this album by a group of fine musicians who play instruments such as mandolin, cello and violin. The album has a cover drawing of NEeMA by Leonard Cohen, and comes with a booklet of beautiful photos and lyrics. The album was produced by NEeMA in association with Pierre Marchand and Leonard Cohen.

The album opens with the intriguing "Unspoken", and is followed by NEeMA's version of Dire Straits "Romeo and Juliet". While I often find covers a waste of time and something to be skipped, NEeMA's version is the exact opposite. She sings the song with such sensitivity and yearning that she transforms it into something that is arguably even better than the original. This is followed by two particularly haunting tracks - "Unwinding" with its chorus "Letting go, letting go/ I'm letting you Go", and "Running" (with the line "I think the darkness scared me"). The guitar and cello on this song have distinct similarites to those on Nick Drake's "Pink Moon" and "Five Leaves Left".

Another outstanding track "Eternity" contemplates childhood fears of an eternity in Hell. This is followed by the highly melodic and upbeat "Escape", which has a catchy chorus, and all the hallmarks of a hit single. Meanwhile, "Sidewalk" (a NEeMA composition) could easily have been written by Leonard Cohen himself, as it has the qualities of his work on "Recent Songs", which includes tracks such as "I Came So Far For Beauty".

5.0 out of 5 stars An Impressive New Voice From An Old Soul 1 Mar 2011
By John Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
from someone else's review that I thought i'd share:

"Watching You Think was produced with Pierre Marchand and mentor/friend Leonard Cohen, an old hand at seducing words to parchment. His endorsement is impressive, but NEeMA's is a singular voice within a radiant countenance. Cohen captured this essence in a network of ink and paints, which he then struck to the album's sleeve. Voila. That her image appears unfinished seems appropriate somehow: this is an artist as a work-in-progress, a palette that, two albums in, we've only just begun to explore."
- The Daily Wrazz (Feb 27th)

"Unspoken", "Escape", her cover of "Romeo & Juliet", and "Masi" are my favorites (so far). But i suspect other songs on this album can rise into that list at any time. I was lucky enough to see her perform recently at Folk Alliance (in Memphis) and was really impressed.
